[applause] for 80 years, we had a president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. [applause] his economic plan passed the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so we could reduce our deficit and invest in our future. at the time, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said this would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that his judgment was just as bad back then as it is today. [applause] by the end of president clinton + second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up in poverty was down and we had the biggest sur

years. technology has made us more productive but it has also made a lot of good jobs obsolete. mobil trade brought us cheaper products but it also means jobs overseas in low-wage countries. american workers saw their paychecks getting squeezed. even when corporate profits rose and ceo salaries exploded. guaranteed pensions and health care starting to erode or disappear are together. -- altogether. the rise of global competition, those are real. we can't wish them away. here is what i know. and we can meet those challenges. we are americans. we have the world's best entrepreneurs, and tests, researchers, colleges, universities. we have the most innovative workers. we have everything we need to thrive in this new economy. there is not a country on earth that would gladly trade places -- that would not gladly trade places with the united states. to secure a future that we want for our kids and our grandkids, we have to make a choice right now. in five days, we will choose our next president.
